Obama Should Not Reinstate Assault Weapon Ban, Gun Enthusiasts Assert
from the Los Angeles Times
U.S. Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder said during a news conference last week that the Obama administration ought to consider renewing a 10-year ban that expired five years ago.

Many countered that the ban did not reduce crime in the U.S. and that any spike since the expiration cannot be attributed to the resumed sale of semiautomatic weapons to private citizens. More

This could be the roughest four years in a long time for those who advocate upholding the Second Amendment.
